At Pure Derma Med Spa we take pride in helping break down boundaries to retaining your beauty. A valued part of our tool set to help reduce skin wrinkles and rebuild collagen is found in Morpheus8, the first full body fractionated technology.
What is Morpheus8?
The first and only full-body fractional technology for subdermal adipose remodeling (SARDS). While being applied externally, it offers the deepest fractional technology. The union of simple application and modern technology allow a physician to target the layers of a patient’s skin which results in a natural anti-aging process.
Morpheus8 gets its name based on its ability to morph skin’s building blocks to contour the patient’s face and body.
- Fractional treatment that safely penetrates 4000 microns deep with an additional thermal profile of 1000+ microns.
- Extremely uniform effect.
- Little to no thermal damage to dermis.
- Safe on skin type up to and including VI with little risk of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) which is common with other resurfacing methods.
Before and After
What Do We Treat With Morpheus8?
Face and Body
Our subdermal adipose remodeling device can be used to contour the face to make it look thinner and younger. It is also frequently used on the body.
This fractional skin treatment stimulates the production of collagen in the underlying layers of the dermis. It can be used on most body parts. We most frequently use it on the lower face and neck where acne, discoloration and wrinkles exist.
Darker Skin Tones
Unlike other resurfacing methods, the Morpheus8 has minimal risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Patients should expect little to no thermal damage to skin. It can even safely treat skin type VI.

Injectable Dermal fillers are a classification of facial injectables that are used to provide instant or gradual correction in areas where there are notable volume changes related to aging and decreased collagen production. Dermal fillers are also widely utilized in areas in which someone wants to highlight or enhance, such as lips or cheek bones.
Dermal filler injections are used in controlled amounts, usually with 1 or more “cc’s” depending on your aesthetic goal and where the fillers are being used. Lips for example need to be gradually built in single syringe intervals for the safest and most tailored lips. On the other side, areas where there are noticeable changes to the facial shape multiple syringes will be needed to address contour changes associated with aging. Discussing your aging concerns or aesthetic goals is important to us, as it allows us to formulate a specific treatment plan within your budget and timeline. Baseline photography is also taken and numbing cream/time is always included in the cost of your procedure.
The majority of dermal fillers that are injected at PureDerma are considered “Hyaluronic Acid” or HA fillers, meaning that they are very compatible with our bodies and provide buildable results that can also be easily “reversed” if necessary. Injectable HA fillers are used to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, facial folds, and to create structure, building back the framework and restoring lost volume to the face and lips.
The effects of injectable hyaluronic acid are seen immediately but also require some gradual time to become integrated into the natural tissues. Meaning, plan accordingly! Injections are encouraged no less than 14 days before any big events. As filler injectables have a risk of bruising and swelling associated immediately and up to 10 days. After the 14 days post injection, it is encouraged for you to come back for a follow up with your injector who will be happy to compare your follow up photos to your baseline photography, and discuss the next step of your anti aging treatment plan if necessary.
Areas where fillers are mostly used is in the mid to lower face, usually the area around and below the eye and includes concerns such as; lines, folds, sagging, creases, or simply any changes in one’s appearance with time. Many of these concerns are caused by UV exposure, hormone changes, as well as weight changes over time.
On occasion, a dermal filler considered a “bio stimulant” is used solo or in conjunction with other dermal fillers such as HA filler. These fillers are used in areas where there is a decreased amount of collagen production and are classified as collagen stimulating and “non reversible”. Our highly skilled Nurse Injector enjoys working with bio stimulants when applicable and will thoroughly explain treatment recommendations for a plan prior to initiating a treatment. Every dermal filler provides a unique outcome depending on how it is used and our goal at PureDerma is to provide the safest advanced techniques to deliver the most natural yet improved….YOU!!!
As we age, dynamic muscle movement under our skin can create etchings in the skin and as those muscles continue to stress the overlying skin those etchings will turn into lines eventually becoming noticeable at rest. Areas where this is most evident is the upper portion of the face where there is less fat to cushion the skin and are known as “11’s, worry lines, and smile lines”. The muscles responsible for those lines can be “relaxed” temporarily with an FDA approved injectable medication such as Botox or Jeuveau.
These FDA approved purified proteins (AKA Botox) are injected into specific areas of the face to promote the appearance of smoother skin. Botox is also used to help with brow or smile asymmetry, helps lift the eyebrows, can eliminate underarm sweating,facial contouring, decreases TMJ muscle tone, chin pebble appearance, neck aging, upper lip sweating, and preventative for early aging concerns. Each person has unique anatomy and unique concerns, meaning that their “dose” or amount of units may differ from another person, ensuring that you get the most tailorable yet natural results.
On the day of your treatment, your provider will discuss with you the amount of units to achieve your goal, immediately afterwards there is very little evidence of any injections after the initial 20 minutes. A few days after your injections, you may notice the “settling in” of your Botox treatment and results are continuous until day 14, which is when a follow with your provider is encouraged. Results typically last 3-4 months in areas of the face and longer results for areas of the body.
The efficacy of these injections make them the most popular non-surgical procedure worldwide.
This procedure is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women, people with current infections or severe allergies, nor Individuals on certain prescribed medications. Full consultation before treatment is required.
The initial Botox appointment can last up to 45 minutes. During this time a thorough medical history consultation will be completed, educating the client on what amount of medication would be best suited for them. This allows each individual to decide which direction they would like to start regarding this service. Full consent forms are signed while confidential medical photos are taken.
Pure Derma Med Spa has been performing cosmetic injections for many years, helping individuals maintain a youthful and softer appearance.
We also have “reward programs” affiliated with each product that you choose to use, thus helping you save money long term, and enjoy rebates that can be applied to future treatments.

PRP Facial: Tap into your body’s natural ability to heal itself.
Within a matter of minutes, we can create autologous (which means from you to you) PRP and activate your stem cells for the procedure.
- First, we draw an amount of blood similar to that of a basic lab test.
- Second, we place the blood into a centrifuge and spins the blood at a very rapid rate, separating the platelets from other blood components.
- Third, the platelets are activated by using natural methods. This activation of platelets is the final step in producing your very own platelet-rich plasma.
The Stem Cells In Your Blood
Scientists know that unipotent stem cells lie dormant in the skin and provide the building blocks for healing burns or cuts. Until recently, physicians had no convenient way to stimulate those stem cells to grow new tissue. By utilizing the blood’s growth factors such as platelets, a physician can activate the stem cells to grow new, younger-appearing skin.
Unipotent stem cells, which grow only one specific tissue, can be found in every part of the body. For example, unipotent stem cells in the liver grow new liver tissue. Unipotent stem cells in the skin grow new skin. Thus, PRP takes the cosmetic rejuvenation process to a scientific level.
Activating 8 Growth Factors
Platelet-rich plasma is similar to hyaluronic acid fillers because it can be injected to sculpt the face. Not only does the PRP cause an increase in volume to improve that “caved in” droopy appearance, but it contains at least 8 natural growth factors that will continually work like a rejuvenating agent.
By activating these growth factors, all three parts of the aging process improve:
- The skin color becomes a “younger” color because of new blood vessel
- New collagen formations lifts the face back to a more youthful shape.
- Because the growth factors are working to build a new dermis, the outer most layers of your skin appear smoother.
PRP Facial reduce the appearance:
- Acne Scars
- Fine Lines
- Sun Damage
- Striae (stretch marks)
- Dull Skin Texture
- platelet-derived growth factor
- transforming growth factor beta
- fibroblast growth factor
- vascular endothelial growth factor
- epidermal growth factor
- Interleukin 8
- keratinocyte growth factor
- connective tissue growth factor
